: cbs tuesday and fox news on wednesday. new details about the terror attacks in benghazi libya. every day this past week we seem to have learned something new about who knew what. e-mails detailing what was going on in benghazi and who was to blame. why did it take so long for the media to pay attention to this story and why did the white house seem to spin it differently? charles krauthammer shared his view earlier. >> they might have calculation. they won't be interested in this stuff. we ride it out until election day. what the secretary of state any judgment because we're going to get the report of her committee. you know what her committee is going to report in the middle of next month. that means after election day. all they wanted to do from the beginning is to string it out until election day and why not run with the story that it's all about an american nut who released a video and not about the administration for admitting that al qaeda is not on the heels but al qaeda is active. >> jon: he went on to say the media ought to be embarrassed. what do you think? >> i think some
quinnipiac/"new york times"/cbs news swing state poll shows president obama leading in ohio with likely voters 50% to 45%. a tighter race in virginia. president obama in 49%. mitt romney at 47% which is a statistical tie within the poll's 3% margin of error. and in florida that poll has president obama at 48% and mitt romney at 47%. another statistical tie. tonight, nate silver of "the new york times" 538 blog forecasts on november 6th president obama will win 300 electoral college votes. and mitt romney will win 238. and president obama's chance of re-election ticked up tonight in nate silver's calculations to 78.4%. and finally, george w. bush has entered the presidential campaign. he did that today when he was dragged into it by his little brother in florida. >> do you honestly think that this president is capable of bringing people together? his entire strategy is to blame others. starting with my brother, of course. basically, he blames every possible thing, rather than having the humility to be able to reach out and define common ground. >> and the fight over who is the real frien
or contain it until the election. something changed when cbs news, to be fair, has been following this story very aggressively but it got special prominence when the main stream media started picking up on the reports and started digging into this in or is it too little too late? >>guest: great question. the answer is, too little too late. if the democrats win, i promise it will be so hard to continue an investigation if romney wins, as many of us hope he does, to protect this nation, i assure you we will get to the bottom of it. but we have men dead, we have soldiers who exposed themselves to harm's way who only did that because they believed they had support. i can tell you quickly, i know from very very personal experience the only thing you have when you go into a very deadly situation is the hope and prayers and knowledge that your guys will be there to back you up. if they don't show up like we understand one of seals that was killed thought when he painted a building where the fire was coming from, and nobody showed up to help. there was nothing, nothing, nothing more fearful to a sol
states, the latest cbs/"new york times"/quinnipiac poll has the president with a five-point lead in ohio, with virginia and florida much higher but also ever so slightly in the president's favor. a new cnn poll of polls shows mitt romney holding a one-point advantage over the president nationally. >>> the romney campaign hits the reset button today after being idled by superstorm sandy briefly. the republican challenger makes three campaign stops, all in florida, attending rallies at tampa, coral gables and jacksonville. his campaign was buoyed by an endorsement from the telegraph in nashua, new hampshire. the editorial board writes we are confident romney is the candidate who would tackle 9 serious issues facing this nation starting with jobs, the economy and the debt. in the end we couldn't say the same about the president. that paper endorse ed barack oba in 2008. and we're getting late word that mitt romney and paul ryan will kick off a four-day tour starting on friday. they'll be joined by their wimps and some 100 other surrogates will be standing out around the country, condoleezza
leap. i want to run a number that jumped out at me from the cbs/"the new york times" poll. in this poll, they asked ohio, florida and virginia voters do you think things in your state, the economic conditions in your state are getting better, worse or staying the same? you look at florida, 37-25 better. virginia 39-19 better. ohio, you have the unemployment rate lower than the national average. 52% better, 17% worse. pretty big difference there. is this just a case where the economic conditions in a particular state are kind of overriding national factors? >> i think that's possible. certainly the case of the state economy stronger than elsewhere and the auto bailout is a tangible example to look at the president saying that's something that made the economic conditions where i live better and not true elsewhere in the country but i will note that broadly speaking romney's performing worse in states where the economy is doing well and like in iowa and the unemployment rate is lower than it is in ohio so i think it's not just as simple of whether the economy is doing well and other facto
to deploy but were upon called upon by the u.s. government. one official told cbs news tonight, the csg is the one group that is supposed to know what resources every agency has. now, they know of multiple options and had the ability to coordinate counter-terrorism assets across all the agencies. they were not allowed to do their job. they were not called upon. meanwhile, the house oversight committee sent a letter to the secretary of state, hillary clinton, asking about documents that indicate that people affiliated with the libyan government may have been involved in the attack. joiningous this breaking news, former new york city mayor, rudy guiliani. there is a likelihood that power is not going to be back on in new york until... some estimates, november 11 or beyond. there is no heat. there is no gas. people are dumpster diving for food. it was all over the drudge report. the president goes for a photo-op. he's gone. there is no help coming in here at all. it is four days into this. i mean, i really believe this is now -- this is a disaster out there. >> it is a disaster. particular
, abc,cbs, the national security media, foreign policy media has done a pretty good job of this. it's a question of is it going to affect the election in time or is it going to be something that sort of drips out more substantially after the election? >> gretchen: isn't that important, david? isn't it important for americans to know the answers before they vote for president of the united states? >> well, it is. but it's not realistic to know all the answers. >> gretchen: why? >> because there is a lot of players that have to be looked at, and frankly, as was mentioned, no administration is going to be anxious to try to be able to uncover all of this. >> gretchen: shouldn't that infuriate americans, that any administration wouldn't want to get answers out? >> i would be infuriated just by all of the statements made that have been patently untrue. jay carney said on september 14, we have no information that this is a planned attack. that's not true. susan rice said on september 16 that this was spontaneous. that was not true. and they knew it was not true at the time. so those are t
